The Arc de Triomphe stands at the end of the avenue des Champs Elysées at place Étoile – the huge roundabout where 12 tree-lined avenues converge. If you’re into extreme sports you may want to rent a car and take it for a spin around the Arc de Triomphe just to test yourself against Parisian traffic (bear in mind that many travel insurance policies specifically state that you will not be covered if you have an accident on the Étoile roundabout). Napoléon commissioned the arch in 1806, 30 years later it was finished and ready for tourists to gawk at. The best access if from the underground passage on the northern side of avenue des Champs Elysées. You get a pretty good view from the top.

    Staircase is not for the claustrophobic.

    Make sure you take the underground passageway near near Avenue des Champs-Élysées! Do not attempt to run across the roundabout.

    It’s cool but the driving plaza around it is scary AF.

    Take stairs if you can. If traveling with those who can't, they do have lift that will take you almost to top. You will need to climb last approx 40 stairs. Views are worth it!

    Preparado pra subir escadas? Ótimo lugar pra ver a cidade do alto e admirar suas ruas organizadas e planejadas. Procure seu sobrenome dentre nomes dos generais no Arco do Triunfo e tire uma selfie.

    A very must see attraction. It is one of the most important, the oldest, the most historic tourist attraction. Possible to climb up. Great at night, possible to observe Tour Eiffel in light.

    Unas escaleras no aptas para personas con sobrepeso, pero unas vistas que no hay que perderse.

    Looking down upon all that what is happening on the street below can be entertaining for hours. The view of the rest of Paris is even better.
